Hurray! I was thrilled to find out that I have been featured in Start Your Own Mom Business!, a new eBook by StartupNation. It was definitely a “Chocolate Cake Moment” for me, where I couldn’t stop smiling and felt the need to celebrate with some Sea Salt Caramels (my new favorite sweet).
I received an advance copy for participating and I think it’s a great resource for moms interested in starting and running a successful business. I would have loved to have access to information like this when I was starting up 5 years ago. I could have avoided oh so many mistakes. While we all learn from mistakes, you can only lose so much time or money before the mistakes start to destroy your business or your passion for being an entrepreneur. This book will definitely help Moms who are noodling starting their own business to make some decisions on whether to go for it.
In addition to success tips specific to mom business owners like managing work-life balance, building a support group, or the perils of working from home, the eBook includes advice and insights from me and 19 other winners of StartupNation’s annual Leading Moms in Business Competition, an annual ranking of the top 200 moms in business in America. In my profile (on page 44 in case you buy the book and want to jump right to my section), I give advice on not being afraid to ask for help and how important it is to validate your business idea before jumping into it wholeheartedly. It doesn’t cost a lot of money to do!
The eBook is available for purchase and download from the StartupNation website here. I don’t get any compensation for promoting the book, other than a nice feeling of validation for my business and ideas. I just think it is a good resource that Moms considering pursuing an entrepreneurial dream should know about.
The first section of Start Your Own Mom Business! focuses on the main keys to success for the mom entrepreneur, highlighting the critical areas of time management, delegation, outsourcing and work-life balance.
The second section of the eBook profiles 20 Leading Moms in Business winners, providing the reader with insights into business management strategies, life management skills and success secrets. There is a profile of each company so Moms can learn more and evaluate the many different kinds of business models.
I’m thrilled to be included in the book and I want to thank everyone who voted for ChocolateCakeClub.com and ChocolateCakeMoments.com last year and then again this year in StartUpNation.com’s Leading Moms in Business Contest. There are some awesome Mom Entrepreneurs in the contest that heck, I would love to learn more from.

If any of you are Mom Entrepreneurs already or thinking about taking the plunge, what books or resources are invaluable to you?
